Wine Sessions at San Sebastian Gastronomika

While famous chefs from all over the world are took the stage at San Sebastián Gastronomika this week, parallel event Wine Sessions brought some of the biggest names in the Spanish wine world together for an incredible program of events.

 

The Wine Sessions kicked off on Monday, October 9th, with a tasting of the ancestral varieties revived by Bodegas Torres. The program continued with "How to become a 'master' sommelier?"; Ars Natura Líquida with Josep Roca; Gramona "artisans of time"; Chivite: 15 collection jewels; and Ribera del Duero: Womena.

Tuesday's program was just as fascinating and high-energy, with topics like "Single-estate cava authorized in harmony" and "Garnacha in the world".

This year's edition of Wine Sessions once again included the Wine & Win competition, a game show-like event that, year-after-year, tests people's knowledge and wine tasting abilities in pairs. The grand finale, during which the audience was welcomed to take part in some of the challenges and wine tasting tests, consisted of a series of questions and live tasting challenges.
